Bela Basque, a 4 star campsite in Anglet
At the gateway to Spain, go off to explore the Pays Basque (Basque Country)! The Bela Basque campsite, a member of the Eden Villages group, is located between Biarritz and Anglet. A magnificent wooded area of 3 hectares on the heights of the Etang de Brindos, is on offer to you. It has a lovely water park and amongst other advantages, a wide choice of holiday rentals.
A campsite in the Basque Country for an unforgettable holiday!
The Bela Basque campsite has a unique geographical location, less than 5 kilometres from the beaches and near the Pyrenees mountain range. On-site, discover a water park of 800 m² with two large heated swimming pools, including one indoor, a paddling pool for the very young and a water slide. You’ll be able to do aquaerobics or have water polo matches every day there.
For accommodation, you can choose between fully equipped mobile homes, the charming “Tit’home” rental without sanitary facilities, or chalets with a semi-covered wooden terrace and luxury facilities. The various holiday rental ranges enable the accommodation of two to twelve people. The largest accommodation capacity comes with the Tribu mobile homes for large families or groups of friends. Enthusiasts of traditional camping can hire basic pitches of 80 to 120 m² with a mains water and electricity connection.
There is no shortage of activities on the Bela Basque campsite. The “Txiki” kids club, for example offers arts and sports activities for young and older children. Football, basketball and pétanque are also on the programme for the holiday, as are ping-pong tournaments. Come the evening, during the summer months, meals and themed evenings with Basque singing take place, amongst other evening activities. You are thus genuinely immersed in the Basque culture on offer to you on this Pyrénées Atlantiques establishment.
A campsite ideally situated just a stone's throw from the Basque coast
After a delicious lunch at Le Taldéa, the campsite restaurant, which serves home-made and seasonal cuisine, get on your bike to one of the 11 exceptional beaches in the town of Biarritz. Admire the iconic “Rocher de la Vierge” rock formation (with a statue of the Virgin Mary) and have a drink in one of the bars along the Les Sables d'Or beach, and as we say in the region: Topa! “Cheers!”
In Biarritz, a town of espadrilles, sunbathing and surfing, why not have beginners lessons in the region’s leading gliding sport? Unless you prefer hikes on the coastal path, one of the best means to discover the Basque coast. This signposted route alternates paths, steps, public footpaths, cliffs and the seaside. You’ll be impressed.
Make a detour via the Saint Jean de Luz bay. Discover its treasures during a fantastic family walk. Be sure to visit the festive Bayonne, famous for its ham but also its chocolate and architecture. With the “Ville d’Art et d’Histoire” designation (reflecting the town’s heritage, architecture and living environment), you’ll discover its legendary Sainte-Marie cathedral and its Gothic cloister.
Succumb to the charms of the Pyrénées Orientales during a stay in Anglet
Have a walk on the Anglet beaches and admire a magnificent sunset over an apéritif. Go to the picturesque village of Espelette, known worldwide for its spices and admire them drying on the house facades. What about having a beginners session in playing Basque pelota (a game involving striking or throwing balls)? This recreational activity takes place in walled courts in all the region’s towns and villages!
Are you thirsty for breathtaking panoramas? Take the La Rhune tourist train which, at 905 metres in altitude, offers a breathtaking view over the Atlantic coast and Spain. In good weather, you can even glimpse the Dune du Pyla sand dune, around 100 kilometres further north! You can also cross the border and go to the Zugarramurdi caves site (in Spain). Here there are stalactites and cave paintings but also an excavation and gigantic galleries, hollowed out by water.
Come the evening, a multitude of activities, themed evenings, concerts and shows await you. On the Bela Basque campsite, lovers of idleness, swimming and water sports are satisfied, as much as lovers of nature, mountains and various hikes in the Pyrenees.
